Hi, I'm Annie.
I'm a wife, mom to two sweet (and sometimes rambunctious) boys, and devout Catholic who has a background in Broadcast Journalism and a knack for thinking outside the box.
Shortly after finishing college, my husband and I found out we were pregnant with our first son and I began to search high and low for part-time work that I could do around my husband's schedule. Long story short, my husband received an amazing job offer that moved us from Small Town, Kansas to the Mile High City, which is when I began doing marketing for small non-profits from my kitchen table. While the work was enjoyable, I wanted to try my hand at a more creative field, which is when I began writing daily for a popular website.
The two things I instantly learned from working freelance were:
1.) The work was fun and something I could do around my son's schedule.
2.) I was making the same amount of money working a few hours a day from home that I would have been making as a full-time reporter.
Since beginning my journey in the world of freelance 2 1/2 years ago, I have had so many friends and family members (mostly moms!) come to me and ask for advice on how to make extra money while staying home with their babies, which is inspired me to create Side Hustle Mom.
Trust me: If I can make a decent living doing this, so can YOU!
Whether you are wanting to check out the world of freelance, start your own niche blog, open a shop, or turn your passion project into a full-blown empire, I want to be your biggest cheerleader and help you any way I can! (You've got this, mamma!)
When I'm not hustling, writing, or chasing my boys around, you can find me at home drinking coffee through a straw, dreaming up our next vacation with my husband, drinking coffee (and/or wine) through a straw with my mom friends, and ordering stuff via Amazon Prime.
